Carl Sandburg (1878–1967).  Cornhuskers.  1918.
 
86. Handfuls
 
 
  BLOSSOMS of babies
Blinking their stories
Come soft
On the dusk and the babble;
Little red gamblers,        5
Handfuls that slept in the dust.
 
  Summers of rain,
Winters of drift,
Tell off the years;
And they go back        10
Who came soft—
Back to the sod,
To silence and dust;
Gray gamblers,
  Handfuls again.        15
